LID:: January 2017 Release:: Day 1


 Today is the first of three days of the Lil' Inker Designs January 2017Release Showcase...full of innovative, fun and beautiful items! It is going to be such an exciting year for Lil' Inker Designs and I hope you can come along for the ride. Once again, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring new stamps and dies perfect for Valentine's Day and every day! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from the ever so talented Jessica's Blog! (Visit the Lil' Inker Design's Blog for the full link up.)


I'm starting off with a card featuring the new Today & Always Greeting Die. It was easy to remove the border with a few snips. The background was created with a previously released stamp set, Vintage Flowers. I finished the card with some Nuvo Drops.


This next card features a few new products! I first started by stenciling a cloud background using the previously release Border Builders Die. Then I added a greeting using the new Love You Much Border Die. I stamped a balloon heart in red and orange inks from the Love You More Stamp Set and used the coordinating Love You More Balloon and Hearts Dies for the balloon and string. I love how you can use this die set for just a heart shape, or use another die piece in the set to create a heart balloon. So versatile! I finished the card by stamping a few small hearts and doodling some dies. The balloon is only adhered to the card at it's base, adding some dimension and interest to the card.


Here's a look at the new release products showcased in my two projects today:



It is with pleasure that I get to send you to the talented Lisa Henke's Blog as the next stop along the hop. I hope you get a chance to visit the Lil' Inker Design Store now as all the NEW JANUARY 2017 RELEASE products are already up at the store!
